Our firm has acknowledged and demonstrated expertise in family law matters. We are as effective in court as we are using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as mediation and arbitration.
The breakdown of a marriage, union or domestic partnership is never easy. Your life will change in ways you probably never expected. It’s important to be proactive and protect your family’s interests, as well as your own.
Divorce and separation bring dramatic changes to a family’s lifestyle and routines. Much of the change concerns new living arrangements for the parties and the children. Finances are also impacted. In most cases, separation and divorce result in a lifestyle adjustment.
Through our network, we can connect you with effective divorce coaches, child and financial specialists, realtors and appraisers to ensure you are well-supported through this challenging transition.
Our clients’ matters sometimes include difficult partners, financial disputes and complex emotional issues. Our frequent success with what’s described as “unresolvable” situations is acknowledged by our peers who frequently refer their clients to us.
